O que você fará

You will develop a new appreciation for the ocean environment and the character of Cape Town's kelp forests. Kelp forests are magical places of serenity and wonder.
We start with a crash course on the unique geography of the Cape Peninsula, and the processes that make Cape Town one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems on this planet. We follow up with a quick fish and shark identification lesson, where you'll be introduced to the marine life you may see on the snorkel. Then we get in the water where you help collect data for our marine research program that investigates the diversity and abundance of the local reef and kelp systems. Let's get wet and submerse ourselves in the underwater forests!
Other things to note
Guests must be comfortable swimming as this is a water-based experience. Minors (<12) must be accompanied by an adult.

Great experience! The host was very knowledgeable on the subject and ensured that we were involved in the activity through presentations about the subject and by sending us pictures of it

Dylan was really patient with me as I initially struggled with the diving kit and kept getting water into my snorkel. He made sure that I was feeling comfortable at sea. He also gave interesting insight on their foundation and how they are helping with sea life conservation. I now have a new found curiosity and appreciation for sea life which I never had before. Thanks Dylan, can't wait to do this again

What a wonderful experience, one of the best in Cape Town! Mike is just splendid as a biologist and guide. We have vastly different ocean skills in our group (complete newbie and nervous to 100% water animal style) and we were both super happy with the journey. A must do! Underwater forest for real.

From above the water I could have never told the amazing underwater life we were about to see in the kelp forest. Don’t expect mega fish but nevertheless we saw octopus, a couple of tiny sharks and a lot of fish and other small sea creatures. Great experience and interesting briefing before going into the water. The gear is new with 5mm wetsuits to keep the body warm. Feet and hands were still cold so it was time to get out of the water after just over an hour.

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Mike. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. The area where we snorkelled was beautiful, and although I was initially nervous about swimming amongst the kelp he made me feel very comfortable and safe. I would recommend this experience to anyone who is visiting Cape Town and wants to see and understand more about our ocean.

What a magical experience! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn about the beautiful natural environment right on our doorstep and also for adventure seekers in search of a unique underwater experience. We spotted an octopus, various types of starfish and sea snails/slugs and also a few shy sharks :)
